Laurie Bryant

Owner/Center Director of Mathnasium of Chicago Hyde Park


How do you like to start your day?

Watching “The View” every morning while getting up and getting ready for work.

What is your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?

Anything water-related: swimming, jet skiing, parasailing, lounging at the beach.

What are you interested in that most people haven’t heard of?

Everyone’s heard of it, but what I’m most interested in is making the world a better place.

What are three things about you that others might find as a surprise?

I’m a certified scuba diver, I’ve been to 27 countries, and I went to the same high school as Michelle Obama.

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

Go on an African safari.

What three words best describe you?

Selfless, Adventurous, Loyal

What do you like most about the work you do?

I love when I get to guide a student from literally being dragged through the center door to LOVING Mathnasium. I sit them down, get to know them, and show them a few math tricks, and they’re HOOKED and then can’t wait to go to Mathnasium. I love the “lightbulb” moment in kids who haven’t ever had confidence before.
